AIMS Periductal angiogenesis in ductal carcinoma in situ is associated with an increased risk of subsequently developing a recurrence. This study aimed to (1) identify the relation between periductal and stromal vascularity and recurrence and (2) determine whether thymidine phosphorylase (TP) is associated with angiogenesis or recurrence in ductal carcinoma(More)
We report the case of a 72-year-old gentleman with mesenteric angina who was successfully treated with stenting of a coeliac artery stenosis using a Palmaz stent, and review the therapeutic options in the management of mesenteric angina.
BACKGROUND To date, research in the role of angiogenesis in cancer has focused mainly on invasive diseases. Measurement of the intra-tumoural microvessel density (MVD) has also been found to be an independent prognostic marker. More recently, natural angiogenic inhibitors and pharmacological drugs capable of suppressing specific stages of neovascularisation(More)
Up to 50% of recurrences of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast are associated with invasive carcinoma but no pathological or molecular features have yet been found to predict for the development of invasive disease. For a tumour to invade, it requires the formation of new blood vessels. Previous studies have described a vascular rim around ducts(More)
The development of an invasive recurrence following treatment for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) converts a non-fatal disease to one associated with mortality. To date, no pathological or molecular features have been found to predict for the type of recurrence. Previous studies have suggested that in DCIS angiogenesis may be an important factor in(More)
high risk for admission to a nursing home. The analysis carried out by Elkan et al found no improvement in functional status, which is inconsistent with the rationale for home visits. How could mortality and admissions to a nursing home be reduced without an effect on functional status? Unfortunately, only four studies contributed to this analysis,(More)
